Shapewear enters into a new league as we push fabrics in this sector to a new level. The basis of creora® Power Fit is crucial in attaining the correct compression, but today’s shapewear has to have more than the core performance of fit. Decorative styling continues to gain ground, moving from the feminine aspect of the past to a more optical and abstract application. In order for the shaping garment to maintain its key feature of shaping and smoothing, the detail is achieved through different yarn use and constructions that are optically flat and don’t alter the structure. Matte yarns contrast with bright tri-lobal yarns, within a fabric or through insertion at the garment stage.

Additional added value comes through the inclusion of performance yarns ranging from cosmetic aspects to cooling as perfect add ons for this next-to-skin application. Traditionally led by synthetics, there is an increasing interest in cellulosic based shapewear enhanced by the performance of creora® eco-soft, low heat settable spandex.

Color also plays a key role in producing shapewear, that continues on its lightweight course. Mysterious in palette, traditional blacks move to the blue color spectrum with grays also coming through. Feminine pink tones also feature, but the demand for black and skin tones remains unstoppable. High compression shaping gets incredibly soft, easy to put on, due to the innovative synthetic yarns used. Today’s shape wear fabrics need to glide on and off the body with ease, yet maintain their true origin of delivering a streamlined silhouette.
